Colour used for the title of the note in Map views.

The colour can be specified as a named Tinderbox colour or as a hex colour, i.e. 'black' or '#000000'.

Default: automatic. This results in either a black or white colour depending on the value of $Color.

The colour of body text displayed in a map note icon is set via $MapBodyTextColor.

This colour may also 'transparent'. This option is intended to help those wishing to use images to form a note icon's contents in Map view. If the note title is transparent, when the note is selected, the note title will still be visible in the text pane.

$NameColor can be set via the Text Inspector ▸ Title tab, 'Color' colour controls.
